Madang residents raise funds for islanders

The Sepik community in Madang Town will be holding a wheelbarrow push today to raise funds for the Kadovar Islanders in Wewak, East Sepik Province.

This will be the second wheelbarrow push.

The first was held last Saturday.

According to the Madang Provincial Disaster Centre, who is working closely with the community in raising funds, a number of wheelbarrow push will be done before they send the funds to help the displaced islanders.

The team is appealing to all Sepiks in Madang Town and the general public, including business houses, to lend a helping hand.
